The HAMBURGER BAHNHOF was built in the mid-nineteenth century as a terminal station for the railway track between Hamburg and Berlin. At the beginning of the twentieth century the building was transformed into a traffic and technology museum and since 1996 it has housed the MUSEUM FOR CONTEMPORARY ART of the NATIONALGALERIE. The HAMBURGER BAHNHOF - MUSEUM FÜR GEGENWART - BERLIN is one of the largest museums for contemporary art in the world. In parallel to temporary exhibitions, the approximately 10,000 square meters of the HAMBURGER BAHNHOF are dedicated to the presentation of artworks from the collection of the NATIONALGALERIE, the MARX COLLECTION, the FRIEDRICH CHRISTIAN FLICK COLLECTION IN HAMBURGER BAHNHOF and the MARZONA COLLECTION.

The aforementioned collections are the point of departure for rotating presentations gathered under the title DIE SAMMLUNGEN. THE COLLECTIONS. LES COLLECTIONS. The KLEIHUES HALL will house the exhibition THE END OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY. THE BEST IS YET TO COME. A DIALOGUE WITH THE MARX COLLECTION, addressing questions about the future. Works from the MARX COLLECTION by Joseph Beuys or Anselm Kiefer are juxtaposed with pieces by younger artists, such as Sara Barker or Jason Dodge. The exhibition BODY PRESSURE. SCULTURE SINCE THE 1960s transforms the HISTORIC HALL into a "sculpture garden": The approximately twenty works from the collections of the NATIONALGALERIE represent the diverse ways in which the human body (or figure) is explored in contemporary art. The RIECKHALLEN were added to the main building in 2004. Temporary exhibitions with works from the FRIEDRICH CHRISTIAN FLICK COLLECTION IM HAMBURGER BAHNHOF are presented in the former shipping warehouse, in dialogue with other collection holdings and works on loan. From the end of November 2013 the exhibition WALL WORKS will explore the gallery wall as a site for art production.
